Description : Maternità, Madonna con Bambino

Oil painting on canvas. Signed lower right. Mary breastfeeding her little son, under the loving gaze of Saint Anne: this is the theme of a sacred nature but proposed in a very human key, which underlines the sweetness of the mother-child relationship and of the family. Giuseppe Ghiringhelli was mainly a landscape and portrait painter, but in his production there are also various representations of the sacred Maternity which, like this one proposed here, are permeated with intimacy and sweetness and characterized by intense lights effects: in this work in particular it is suggestive the effect of the light that radiates from the little head of the child placed in the centre, on the faces bent over him of the two women, and then reverberates on the clothes and in the background, where the shadows created can be glimpsed. The work is presented in a frame from the first half of the 1900s.

Additional Information

Artist: Giuseppe Ghiringhelli (1874-1944)

Born in Milan in 1874 and died in Varese in 1944, Giuseppe Ghiringhelli studied at the Brera Academy, dedicating himself to landscape and portrait. In 1900 he exhibited for the first time at the Milan Biennale, and subsequently participated in several national exhibitions.

Age: XX Century - from 1901 to 2000

The twentieth century is characterized by the prevalence of the bourgeoisie over the working class and by the discovery that life continues to be a struggle for survival and to improve its quality. Technological progress, instead of favoring this development, becomes an instrument of mechanization and drying up of man, who needs to look for a "soul supplement" and new forms to express it. Therefore, a whole series of artistic currents are born that create works expressing the interiority of man, which evoke reality from within rather than represent it, and depict it using, freely, shapes and colors. We therefore have Decadentism with Art Nouveau, Matisse and Braque's Fauvism, Picasso's Cubism, then Expressionism with Munch, Kandinskij's Abstractionism and Metaphysical painting by Carrà and De Chirico. There are numerous currents and groups of artists and intellectuals who use Art as a Manifesto of their thought, often also with a political connotation.

Artistic technique: Pittura

La pittura è l'arte che consiste nell'applicare dei pigmenti a un supporto come la carta, la tela, la seta, la ceramica, il legno, il vetro o un muro. Essendo i pigmenti essenzialmente solidi, è necessario utilizzare un legante, che li porti a uno stadio liquido, più fluido o più denso, e un collante, che permetta l'adesione duratura al supporto. Chi dipinge è detto pittore o pittrice. Il risultato è un'immagine che, a seconda delle intenzioni dell'autore, esprime la sua percezione del mondo o una libera associazione di forme o un qualsiasi altro significato, a seconda della sua creatività, del suo gusto estetico e di quello della società di cui fa parte.
